Bellus Academy has outlined these popular choices so you can be informed when making this important decision.
Spas and Salons
There is a wide variety of spa environments, from day spas and high-end resorts to cruise ships. You can even start your own spa or salon after completing your training through Bellus Academy’s Esthetics program at any of our campuses in
In this setting, your main responsibilities will involve extensive skin work through exfoliations, facials, and pore cleansing to boost the appearance and confidence of your clients. You may also give recommendations on treatment and products for them to use to enhance their look.
Different from standard spas in their level of care and services offered, luxury spas are a rapidly growing segment of the industry and demand qualified estheticians. This has led Bellus Academy to incorporate specific luxury spa training at our locations. Some of the skills you will learn beyond typical esthetic techniques include eyelash extensions, brow enhancement, and hair removal.
Estheticians don’t only have to work in the beauty industry. As a medical esthetician, you can work in a plastic surgery clinic or hospital assisting with medical procedures and recovery that affects patients’ appearance. Our curriculum at our Poway and El Cajon campuses in California supports this career path. For instance, the Esthetics 103 course provides medical spa training so you can learn how to analyze damaged skin and make the proper corrections.
Do you want to show off your artistic side while working with a variety of different clients? If so, becoming a make-up artist may be right for you. This career path is focused on preparing clients for appearances on camera, whether they are a runway model or television actor. The curriculum includes techniques in make-up application, special effects, airbrushing, and more.
As part of the program, you will have the chance to hold your own professional photoshoot to display the skills you’ve learned. Make-up artistry is offered as part of the esthetics program at all four of Bellus Academy’s campuses.
